GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Glendale police are investigating after a teen said he was tied up during a home invasion Thursday morning.

According to Glendale police spokesman Sgt. Brent Coombs, a 14-year-old boy was alone in his home near 81st Avenue and Camelback Road when there was a knock on the door at approximately 7:30 a.m.

The person outside indicated they were there for some sort of landscaping issue. Coombs said the teen opened the door and at least two people wearing masks forced their way into the home and tied him up.

Coombs said the suspects may have been armed.

"Our victim indicates that they were inside the house for quite a while, we don't know exactly how long, but during that time they were saying some things to him that he didn't entirely understand," Coombs said.

After the suspects left, the boy freed himself and called police just before 11 a.m. He was treated for some minor injuries.

At this time, police don't know if anything was taken from the home.

Police are still interviewing the teen to try and piece together exactly what happened.

There is no information on the suspects or motive for the home invasion.
